Steven Spielberg is finishing up his Lincoln movie starring Daniel Day Lewis, so he’s naturally getting started on his next film Robopocalypse.
By the way, Robopocalypse is Spielberg’s return to big budget popcorn stuff. It’s set to come out in May 2014, which is the same time Avengers came out this year. It’s based on a book and is about a robot uprising. And guess who just nabbed the lead role? The God of Thunder himself, Chris Hemsworth.
This was a coveted role. Because, well it’s a popcorn Spielberg flick. It’s a big chance for Hemsworth to take a step up and because a true leading man. [Deadline]
